, are you the republican governor of indiana. >> for two more months. >> stephen: previously director of office of management and budget under george bush. senior advisor to reagan, you've been around for a long time, okay. and you've got a book here, out in paperback now called keeping the republic, saving america by trusting americans. so what do you mean by that? do i have to trust all americans? because my understanding is there are about 47% who are parasites. (cheers and applause) can we trust each other? >> yeah, sure. and you know, i think the point, stephen, is that democracy really only works if people are allowed to make their own decisions. and i think a lot of folks with perfectly good intentions believe that you or i maybe we're just victims, you know, and we need them to page decision for us. we might pick the wrong mortgage or the wrong credit card or the wrong health care. we might pick the wrong light bulb, you know. >> stephen: uh-huh. >> so you know-- . >> stephen: we might buy paint that has lead in it. we might drive cars that have lead in it. we might live next
but that president obama made into a swing state in 2008 is the great state of indiana. indiana flipped from red to blue in the presidential contest. president obama is not necessarily expected to pull off the same thing this year in indiana. but this year there's a really hot race in indiana in the senate. after a tea party primary cost senator richard lugar his senate job, the republican candidate in indiana ended up being the guy on the left side of your screen richard mourdock. he's up against joe donnelly. since he made his rape comment at a debate a few weeks ago, in very, very, very, very red state indiana, the republican candidate is now behind in that state senate race. he's losing the race by double digits. here's the interesting thing about that poll to. it's a poll in indiana, which almost never happens. it's really weird, but nobody nationally never knows what's going on in indiana politics because they don't poll in indiana. in indiana, it's illegal to make automated calls for telemarketing purposes and for public opinion surveys like polling. you can't use an auto dialing device u
, and this information is comingnn as we're sitting here. the sta of indiana has been projected. mitt romney is projected the winner in the state of indiana. that is a state barackbama won narrow w but he did win it four years ago. but this is not a surprise. it was expected to go for republican. >> ifill: we're watching much bmore to see what happens in indiana in the senate race. we're hearing that vermont, the toesident once again in the green mountain state, the networks are projecting thates barack obama wil win in vermont. >> woodruff: now we'll have complete analysias was watch these calls w and projections ce in. we'll have completena asisna and reaction to the latest returns just ahead on the pbsnd newshou. major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: >> c is a uvers languae. when i w in an accident i wac2 worried the healtcare stem c2e lauall its own witunited health care i gotot helthat fit mlife, c2formion on mphone, coection to ctorwho getet where i'from, tools to eime wh mcare m cost.t. i never miss . >> wee more tn 78,0 peoplec2 looking out for more tn 70 llion ericans. that's
far if you put indiana and kentucky together, that's 19 electoral votes for mitt romney to start out with. we knew he was going to get those votes, we expected two states that are too early to call both georgia and south carolina, are both going to go for romney eventually anyway, we don't know that, we don't have any raw vote, but in preelection polling it was clear those were part of romney's base. georgia was a state that president obama was hoping to target. didn't look like that was going to come true. vermont, three electoral votes for the president, now on the board too, but that was expected. the one we're watching, guys, is the state of virginia. 13 electoral votes. both candidates have been targeting the state. 40% of the vote comes from the counties of northern virginia near washington, d.c. the other parts of the state are more conservative, more rural, more southern, and that's where it gives mitt romney hope of offsetting the margins that president obama could run up in northern virginia. we're just beginning to know what's happening tonight, but virginia is really the
they realize that they not going to win, obviously. north carolina and indiana, two states they won before. they think there is a firewall in the midwest and the three states they want are ohio, wisconsin, and iowa and nevada and, if they win those four states, they'll be all right. they don't have to win florida and virginia then. >> one thing we know by tomorrow night, we won't know the answer to any of those questions. >> exactly. >> we thank you. mark. as the candidates move on, mitt romney will end the evening in new hampshire and the president's going home to chicago. >> all right, guys. election officials in d.c. say about 52,000 people voted early this year. more than twice as early in the september 2010 primary and that is adding up to more than 10% of the population. comes with long waits, two hours or more in some cases. >> yes, we k. >>> supporters of maryland's question four rallied. it would grant in-state tuition for illegal immigrants who arrived as children provided they meet several requirements. >> they have the ambition and passion and drive to be positive forces in the
are starting to count votes. indiana, kentucky, georgia, vermont, and virginia are done. we are watching this vote across the country. right now the focus is on virginia, the first of nine so- called swing states. >> and the most critical state of these early swing states. virginia had 13 electoral votes. the polls closed about 3 minutes ago. we're expecting to get numbers soon. president obama was the first president to get the vote since lyndon johnson. it was a very, very close state for both candidates right now. obama has a slight lead in virginia. let's check one more time, see if any numbers have come in. we'll be keeping an eye on virginia. of course ohio, florida, and the other swing states as well. >> one of the states we mentioned, only one we mentioned in which president obama is expected to win is vermont. three electoral votes. we are continuing to monitor vermont. we want to take you now to indiana. as you see here, we have 5% reporting. romney is leading in indiana. president obama won the state of indiana four years ago. we do have one state right now, kentucky, with its
tester, heidi heitkamp from the dakota, joe donnelly for sure from indiana, these are people who won because they were saying i am an independent voice, i will not be beholden to my party. and i think that you have an opportunity -- whether or not they take it and not is quite another question -- but you have an opportunity to have a new center in the scented. it would be mostly made up of democrats, unfortunately. but i think it will be interesting to watch all of these people and how they behave, particularly when it comes to tax reform. i think it is one place where they could be tremendously influential and be the bridge that sort of gets it done. >> terrific. ice build think we have a microphone assistance. let's -- i still think we have microphone assistance. let's play stump the band -- >> i think it is stump the chumps. >> anybody closer already have a microphone? >> what do you see the relationship between the hill and the cabinet agencies? committees are usually working pretty well. congressional relations people at the agencies, used the politicals of the democratic side -
at indiana, this was a state that barack obama picked up four years ago by the thinnest of margins. but having to add to that red state blew it is back to read tonight. we can estimate when all the votes are in. indiana will tippett's 11 electoral votes to of mitt romney. again, these are largely as expected. in vermont also as expected, barack obama wins the state of vermont. so, again, these are pretty much in line with what had been expected. the gubernatorial race there, hanging on and will likely be governor. there was that threat to challenge that. maybe split tickets along with of vermont line. that is not happening this year. it is not unusual, for example, to have a republican governor and in the case of lombardi sanders, an independent mayor. burlington and now, of course, an independent senator. he will easily win reelection tonight. that was never much in doubt. bernie sanders, practically a rock star in the state of vermont. still very early. we are in no way, shape, or form able to project averaging is going to go. that is very closely monitored. thirteen electoral vo
that brings mitt romney 3 electoral votes. indiana went to president obama four years but not this time, mitt romney has been declared the winner of indiana, 55 to 45%. take a look at kentucky, another win for mitt romney, 59 to 41%. again, no surprises here. these are states that didn't turn out any differently than projected. >> let's take another look at another state and that is the state of west virginia, you can see with the five electoral votes going to mitt romney. if you look here, you can see south carolina went to mitt romney. no big surprises. we want to take to you vermont that went to president obama. that too was expected. if you take a look at the map where we are focusing on is ohio. mitt romney capturing the neighboring states. a key battleground state, continuing to monitor the results, coming in by the minute, watching ohio and florida carefully. >> voters are voting on the legalizing of marijuana. this national trend and unusual one way this law enforcement has gotten involved in the campaign. >> another piece of history that could be made. one of these states could be th

, indiana has had 38 powerball winners. missouri, following with 26. the most tickets are sold in florida, which has seen four winners in just the past three years. advisers say winners should take a lump sum payment. and for a singer winner at this point, that would mean walking away with a cool $327 million before taxes. >>> the looming fiscal cliff is one reason you may want to take that lump sum. if no deal is reached, and taxes go up, most financial advisers say that could cost the winner millions. >>> and with that fiscal cliff ahead, president obama is mounting a full-court press, making his case for higher taxes on wealthier americans, even as critics accuse him of being back in campaign mode. he'll meet today with mittle-class meshes who taxes will go up if there's no deal by the end of the year. and he talked to high-powered ceos about cutting the nation's deficit. >>> susan rice, who is the front-runner to be the next secretary of state, is back to capitol hill for more meetings with some of her harshest critics. the topic this time, her comments after the attack on the consula
will be in indiana and kentucky, but all eyes are on the swing states, many believe it will decide the election. polls in virginia close at 7:00 eastern with north carolina the subject of the battle for ohio and parts of florida behind. they close at 7:30. the results will come fast on on battleground states indicative of how independent voters ultimately all voters will decide this race. as tight as they have been nationally, four years ago president obama became the first democratic and 44 years to win virginia. going into election day today, virginia's 13 editorial votes are considered to be in play and virginia remains a state both campaigns deemed critical to the editorial college victory. governor romney's path to victory narrowing considerably without virginia. sending the first lady for last-minute rally yesterday. the home of this year's democratic national convention and the 15 editorial votes could easily move to the republicans. remember two weeks ago the obama campaign aide claimed the president had given up on north carolina. the two met campaigns have spent $170 million on campai
richard lugar's seat in indiana last night, defeating state treasurer, richard mourdock. he joins me now. well, mr. donnelly, congressman, i am so impressed, you gave up a safe seat in the house, you risked it all, you put it all on -- i guess you put it on blue, the democratic ticket. and you bet -- were you better off running against mourdock, who ended up being a bit loosy goosy, or better off going against dick lugar? >> chris, thank you very much. what i bet on were the people of indiana, that we're a common sense -- we have a common sense attitude, we're conservative, but we believe in the basics, getting things done. and we're not extreme. and what happened was this campaign came down to someone with very extreme positions and what i tried to do was just focus on the middle. the same place where senator lugar has been for the longest time, is just trying to do common sense things. moving our country forward. and, you know, i thought that that made a lot of sense, that that's where hoosiers were, and we were very fortunate last night. >> you've been on the front lines, and there's
the polls close is indiana senate where richard murdoch the republican who had a gaffe about rape and abortion is fighting against a moderate joe donley, democrat. this should be a lockdown republican seat but it's close. it was close before the gaffe. because they ousted richard lugar a more moderate republican. it's that seat and the missouri seat where the republicans could have given away two morrison at seats. if this was, astuter and christina said this was the golden opportunity for the republicans to take back the senate. >> woodruff: is there a thread running through all that or are these just isolated instances of what happened in individual races? >> i mean the republicans, this is not... this is becoming a pattern with republicans. i mean it happened in 2010. they had a chance to knock out harry reid. the senate majority leader. they nominated angle instead and lost. they lost christine o'donnell over mike castle in delaware. they've done too... they nominated mr. buck in colorado over miss norton who would have won. probably would have beaten michael bennett. they've

for romney. romney in south carolina, indiana, and kentucky. the projections give obama 3 electoral votes and they hope the number adds up to 270 or more needed to win the election. obama and the first lady arrived at home in chicago. the president wrapped hip his campaign with a visit to ohio and other swing states and criticized his opponents economic policies. he said romney would only increase the gap between rich and moor. romney voted in belmont, massachusetts. he, too, visited ohio and other swing states at the end of the campaign. he told voters obama failed in his efforts to fix the economy. we're drawing on the projections of our partners at u.s. broadcaster abc news. before the ballots are counted they're using exit polls to project the results state by state and analyze the counting and feed that into the model. we'll update the electoral votes projected for each candidate and we're starting to see those tick up. millions of americans get their say in who becomes president. what happens after that seems like a riddle to some. thanks for joining us. how do election officials de

are watching, and the polls are closed in these areas. this is the indiana senate race. richard mourdock, a name that has stirred some controversy, we have been watching this closely. he is trailing slightly to the democrat, but only 48% of precincts reporting, and it is still too close to call. the state of virginia as well as one we have watched closely. close one with the republican. there is an independent candidate here as well with the thinking was might get some numbers, but you can see apparently not playing much of a part. 31% of the votes are in, and so far, republican george allen with a slight lead, another name you might remember well. in the missouri senate race, clare macassar go and -- claire mccaskill and todd akin -- akin trailing. this is the one democrats did not seek to win anyway, and suddenly, they got a gift in their han still to close to call their, as it is in the state of massachusetts where they have pumped millions of dollars into the senate race. scott brown, the incumbent, the republican who won with his truck for last time around. elizabeth warren has come
